“Gold Baby” by MONA
Swedish singer/songwriter MONA delivers a bittersweet showcase of honesty, emotions and heartbreak with her latest gem “Gold Baby”. This talented artist takes a look at relationships and how they seem when the end is near and you suddenly realize this. She explores how it was once a beauty and now as it dwindles into oblivion we remember how golden it once was and wish to have it reborn as if new…but we know that’s not possible. Her voice expresses the sorrow, the pain and the acceptance of this fate in a way that we understand and connect as we can see a reflection of ourselves. She speaks softly and not in anger, she knows the road for this relationship was meant to end and so it did. There’s understanding, love, acceptance and a strange sense of fulfillment as something once beautiful is now dead and gone. She embraces the soundscape created and gives us a must listen gem that I would recommend instantly. So listen, enjoy and know that she understands the end is not meant to be gold as it once was.
“It’s about the point in a relationship when realizing that you’ve reached a dead end and there’s no way back to what once was.”
